CFindFile - conditional FindFile() filter?

Right now I have this which works:

CFileFind ff ;
BOOL bWorking = ff.(sDir + _T("\\") + _T("*.txt")) ;
while (bWorking)
{
  .. // etc..

It will get all .txt files, it works just fine.

I now have files which are called  "xxxx_port.txt" - I need to exclude these from the selection of *.txt

Is there a way to modify that line so to get:   *.txt || !(*_port.txt)  type of thing?

thanks

No, but you can add an extra search just for the xxxx_port.txt files, and compare the results to your original search.

Example code usuage of above link:

void Test(const CString &sDir)
{
      FindFilesInPath ff(sDir + _T("\\"), _T("*.txt"));
      FindFilesInPath ff_Unwanted(sDir + _T("\\"), _T("????_port.txt"));
      for (int i = 0;i < ff.c_FileList.GetSize();++i)
      {
            BOOL IsUnwanted = FALSE;
            for (int b = 0;b < ff_Unwanted.c_FileList.GetSize();++b)
            {
                  if (ff.c_FileList[i] == ff_Unwanted.c_FileList[b] )
                  {
                        IsUnwanted = TRUE;
                        break;
                  }
            }
            if (IsUnwanted) continue;
            //Process good file here
            AfxMessageBox(ff.c_FileList[i]);
      }
}

FYI:
If you want to exclude all files that have a _port.txt ending, then modify above code to the following:
FindFilesInPath ff_Unwanted(sDir + _T("\\"), _T("*_port.txt"));

That will exclude files like the following:
1234_port.txt
abcd_port.txt
foo_port.txt
wiget123_port.txt


Where as ("????_port.txt") will only exculde files that have exactly four characters before _port.txt.
1234_port.txt
abcd_port.txt

Last bit,
I just modified the code in http://code.axter.com/FindFilesInPath.h 
And I added a RemoveFromList function.

You can know use the following method:

void Test(const CString &sDir)
{
      FindFilesInPath WantedFileTypes(sDir + _T("\\"), _T("*.txt"));
      FindFilesInPath UnWantedFileTypes(sDir + _T("\\"), _T("????_port.txt"));
      WantedFileTypes.RemoveFromList(UnWantedFileTypes.c_FileList);
      for (int i = 0;i < WantedFileTypes.c_FileList.GetSize();++i)
      {
            //Process good file here
            AfxMessageBox(WantedFileTypes.c_FileList[i]);
      }
}

OK, this is really the last post.

I forgot to add, that if you need the full path, use c_StartingPathList member function in conjunction with c_FileList.

Example:
AfxMessageBox(WantedFileTypes.c_StartingPathList[i] + WantedFileTypes.c_FileList[i]);
